The Movies Comes to Pinball FX2 VR With Universal Classics Update

Pinball FX2 VR has made its appearance on just about every virtual reality (VR) headset, and has been positively received by its audience. Today developers Zen Studios have announced that in collaboration with Universal, its popular film-inspired Universal Classics pack will be entering VR.

The Universal Classics Pinball pack includes several tables which are beloved by the fans, all of which have been inspired by classic films such as E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Jaws and Back to the Future.

The E.T. Pinball table lets players see E.T. greet players with a friendly wave at the start of each game, and levitates around the table as you play, even elongating his neck to get a closer peek at how your game is progressing.

In the Jaws table, a fully animated VR model of Jaws himself will circle ominously around you as you rack up the points, and players will be able to get a close-up look at his terrible teeth as he takes a bite out of your virtual pinball cabinet.

Over on the Back to the Future table, you can check out the flying Delorean as it flies around your virtual table, changing with the time period as you switch through the decades. A model of the iconic clock tower that players a vital role in the film stands in the play field, complete with sound effects taken directly from the film.

“For Zen Studios’ first-ever VR tables inspired by popular films, we’re offering up three of the most popular ones we’ve created in recent memory,” says Mel Kirk, Zen’s Vice President of Publishing. “We know that VR players are as hungry as a great white on the Fourth of July for quality new content, and Zen is happy to deliver with Universal Classics Pinball.”

Universal Classics Pinball is available for Oculus Rift, Oculus go and Samsung Gear VR, priced at $19.99 (USD). For other news on new and upcoming VR title,s keep checking back with VRFocus.
